what-is-malware-as-a-serviceCheckpoint researchers found forty applications on Google Play Store that contains a new family of malware named DressCode.  The malware is able to infect corporate BYOD mobile devices and access internal network or corporate web servers. It is possible for an attacker to establish communication with infected mobile devices and send a command to retrieve files from internal networks if the device is on the internal corporate network.

Some of the applications of Google play that are infected are Dress up Musa winx, Dress up princess Apple White, Forsaken House and Dark Goddess and another 400 applications carrying the malware were discovered on third party app stores.

This is a warning that enterprises shouldn’t rely only on the protections that Google offers for its apps, considering the vulnerable nature of Android devices.
